I got these to drive up into the mountains and snow shoe. A day after they arrived, Seattle got whacked with a brutal 7 day storm. These things are expensive, but they work as advertised. In particular, they are very easy to get on and, especially, off.
Since the highways here are clear and the side streets are ice, I've been having to put these on to leave the house, pop them off near the freeway, and then put them on again once I exit the freeway. I've never used normal chains before, so I can't say if these are faster to mount or un-mount, but they do go on in about a minute per tire and off in about 30 seconds. However, you will have to add time to back off them, since they always end up under the tire the way toast ends up falling butter down.
I have them on a base 2008 Honda Fit in case anyone cares. Front wheel drive and these mean I can go wherever I want. Excellent traction, but I'm more of a sucker for the ease.
just used these chains in tahoe after digging my car out of 3' of fresh snow on the sloped icy driveway of our ski house. after clearing the snow from the tires, the chains took about a minute for each tire to install. if I had used them before, it probably would have taken less time. my accord climbed up the driveway with barely any slipping...our friends AWD Subaru took 5 guys to help push it out. After I got to plowed roads the chains took about 30 seconds to remove. Just pull the "ripcord" and they basically fall off the tire. highly recommended!
the only reason I give them 4 stars is the manual recommends to not drive over 35mph with these chains. Driving on a 55mph road that was only partially snow-covered was pretty agonizing. And they're a bit expensive for something that only gets used every now and again...but for the convenience and time saved installing, I think they're worth every penny.
there's a video on youtube detailing the installation and removal of the chains. if you search for "konig chains" or "thule chains" it should come up.
